Pat Morita Filmed Fewer Episodes Of Happy Days Than You Probably Think

There are actors whose work we admire ... and those whose mere presence on screen elicits a big smile, and a warm fuzzy feeling. For several generations of film and television lovers Noriyuki "Pat" Morita was basically the poster boy for the latter category. But he was also that rarest of actor who, at the exact same time, often earned a spot in the former — I.E., the sort of actor who was seemingly incapable of delivering a wrote note anytime the cameras were rolling. That very quality helped the actor earn a well-deserved Academy Award nomination for his work in the 1984 blockbuster "The Karate Kid." And if there's a single role in Morita's mostly impressive showbiz oeuvre that he's most identified with, it's undoubtedly that of Mr. Miyagi from "The Karate Kid" franchise.
